I wrote an editorial on the 64-bit decision by Exchange to not release their next version in 32 bit. Only 64. Some friends and I had a discussion at lunch today, with most of them thinking this was more a marketing decision than a technical one, but I'm not sure.
I did get an interesting email from someone in the 64-bit hardware
business that mentioned they might be able to work out a deal for
hardware with SQLServerCentral.com. That would be interesting from the
standpoint of reporting on the product. There was also a potential
offer to do some 32 v 64 testing. I'm not sure I have anything from SSC
to test, but perhaps someone out there is interested and wants to get
some testing time in exchange for allowing us to report on it?
